Believe me–all writers pray. “Oh, God! Help! 😳Where did that file go?” Or “Please, God. What happened? All lost?😫 Sometimes we pray. “Please make that editor buy my book! ” And sometimes we ask God to damm our computers. We send prayers for people searching for books on Amazon.
Today was a perfect example. I worked all day on the final copy of a book I’ve been editing. Suddenly, everything changed. My 6×9 format for the boo reverted back to a 8.5×11 size. I could not get it to undo. “Oh, God!!” I had a backup but not for the last 3 weeks of changes. “Please! Please!” I saved as and quickly used a different name. Then with extreme praying I opened my file for 15 minutes prior to the disaster! “Thank You, God! Thank you!”
They say, “There are no atheists in a foxhole.” I add “or in front of a computer.”
